Uefa to charge club with match fixingUefa say that charges of match fixing will be brought against a European club within a matter of days.

Irregular betting patterns have been uncovered from a number of European club matches over the past two seasons. In total, 10 Uefa Cup games from this season and 15 from 2008 / 2009 have been under review.

Uefa general secretary David Taylor said:

Uefa to charge euro club with match fixing There are a number of cases we have been looking at.

Within the next couple of days we’ll be issuing charges against one club.

Uefa is setting up a betting fraud detection system across Europe to include 27,000 matches in the first and second division in each national association.

Only a few matches cause us problems but we are determined to root out this problem.

Uefa president Michel Platini added:

Uefa to charge euro club with match fixing There is a grave danger in the world of football and that is match-fixing.
